City of York Council is unable to say who has submitted the application, but The Press understands that it's  new production rather than the continuation of anything ongoing.

We understand that York will be playing the part of York, rather than standing in for say London and there are scenes also being shot in Belgium. 

The last major filming in York was a year ago when Netflix shot The Crown Season 6 in and around York Minster.

York Minster was closed to visitors for a week this time last year as Imelda Staunton and fellow actors turned up to shoot the hit show.

Season six of The Crown stars Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Dominic West as Prince Charles, Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, Olivia Williams as Camilla, Ed McVey as Prince William and Meg Bellamy as Kate.
